I finally found my bag of old Empire Plastic horses, and can complete my White Wolf regiment. (It's only taken 20 years...) I have mentioned before that biggest challenge in this project is actually matching the paints. I was a big fan of the old Polly S fantasy line back in the early 90s and it is now long out of production. Today I use a smaller pallette, and several of the colors have long since dried out. (My Bugbear Fur and Mud are still barely holding on.) The hardest has been matching my old fleshtone. Today I tend to start with Vallajo Sunny Flesh, and then use a darker or lighter shade depending on the scale. Here I think I used "Human Flesh" (That's not a controversial way to name it...) with highlights of light yellow, white and Dwarf Flesh. I also use less depth of shading now, as I am more interesting in completing units than individual characters. I think the three look alright as a group and blend "OK" with the group.
